prison – NOUN – pris·on – a state of confinement or captivity.
“I am going to shoot up and bomb your offices for lying and creating fake definitions in order to pander to the tranny mafia. Boys aren’t girls, and girls aren’t boys. The only good Marxist is a dead Marxist. I will assassinate your top editor. You sickening, vile tranny freaks.”Jeremy David Hanson, 34, of Rossmoor, California
Jeremy David Hanson was sentenced to a year in prison after admitting to sending threats (see above) to Springfield-based Merriam-Webster because he was furious over the dictionary’s inclusion of gender-inclusive definitions.
Between Oct. 2 through Oct. 8, 2021, Hanson repeatedly sent threatening messages through the Contact Us page promising to bomb the MW HQ and hurt employees.
US Attorney Rachael S. Rollins said in a news release: “Hate has no place in Massachusetts. Mr. Hanson made numerous, anonymous hate-fueled threats of violence to intimidate and instill fear. Hateful and bigoted acts, even if only spoken like those committed by Mr. Hanson, terrorize communities and are destructive to our society.
Rollin urged people to report instances of hate toward the LGBT community by calling 1-83-END-H8-NOW (1-833-634-8669).
